On the picture below, I want to let my point connect to the line with the shortest distance and show the distance to me.

enter image description here

I tried NNjoin, MMQGIS, v.distance But I still can't get the distance.

How do I connect them and get the shortest distance?

enter image description here

After that, I used the field calculator, but I think the distance is wrong

enter image description here

I measured it by myself, is any details can tell me to calculate the distance?

    in your 1st picture I notice a layer called 'gps1'. I think this will be in wgs84. In the last picture I see in the measure-tool 'OTF off'. I think you are measuring in the wrongs crs, namely wgs84. This will give you the wrong results! Can you say which crs you are using? – PieterB Oct 22 '18 at 14:48
